At the Captivate event last week, we were lucky enough to check out Asura's Wrath, a new IP from Capcom that is as impressive as it is difficult to explain. Adam Rosenberg was on the scene, though, and got his eyes on the game to bring you a preview. Here's a bit:
"Of all of the game's that Capcom showed last week at its annual Captivate preview event, CyberConnect2's Asura's Wrath is at once the most beautiful and the most difficult to talk about. It's a big game simply in terms of the scale of things; the demo we saw pitted Asura, the game's protagonist, against a demigod that eventually grew to more than double the size of Earth. The best place to start is with the story's basic setup, which Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, the game's producer, walked G4 through in an exclusive interview.
'Asura's Wrath is taking these elements from Asian mythology and blending them into a world of science fiction," he said through a translator. 'Asura himself was one of the demigods who was protecting this Earth and the people who live there.'"
